2015 ASID TGCC Ruby Award Winners By Shawna Roorda, NCIDQ, ASID, RID The 2015 ASID Ruby Design Awards was the largest Awards event that our Chapter has held in 40 years. The awards drew an astonishing 298 total entries, and a sold out black tie Gala at The House of Blues set the tone for an exciting event. The room glowed with beautiful candlelight, and an intermission allowed members to mix and mingle in between awards. Emcee Letecia Ellis-Haywood recognized members from the last 40 years who have been bestowed the title of Fellow, Chapter Medalists, and Industry Partner Merit Award recipients. As well to commemorate the 40th Anniversary, Past Presidents provided quotes that played over the duration of the night speaking to how ASID has impacted their lives. At the end of the Awards ceremony, an energetic crowd closed out the night with dancing. Winners were featured in the October issue of Modern Luxury Interiors Texas as well as the Fall issue of Houston Design Resources. The November issue of Modern Luxury Houston had a write up about the event as well, along with a few photos. Be sure to keep an eye out for additional coverage in the January issue of Modern Luxury Interiors. Event photography by Clay Bailey of Kaiser Photography. A big thank you to the hardworking committee that put this monumental event together - Chairs Crystal Reeves, Dan Pedersen, and Miguelina Veras, and then members Kendra Garrett, Brooke Bowman, Desiree Guillory, Robina Shepherd, Marilyn Vrana, Adrian Laday, Natalie Koelsch, and our then President Letecia Ellis-Haywood and President Elect Martha Lurie. This successful event would not have been possible without you!
